by fragmented management that saw several government agencies overseeing different parts of the law without a single point person. david cutler, harvard professor and former presidential adviser. they were running the biggest startup in the world and they didn't have anyone who had run a startup or a business. it wasn't only mismanagement that doomd doomed the rollout, fear of republican sabotage and concerns over the 2012 election set the disaster two years before the site launched. "washington post" reports the white house slowed down important regulations that had been drafted months earlier, to wait until just months after president obama's election. medicare's top risk analyst, it was the president's most significant domestic policy achievement and the very aides that pushed the law through congress were risking bad implementation for a short-term political gain. regarding the president's infamous promise if you like it, you can keep it, some white house policy advisers objected to the breadth of keep your plan, they were overruled. in recent days, current aides have downplayed or dism
